    I got your point. Hanalei is not far from Bali Hai another spot from the movie - BTW, there are no "B"s in the Hawaiian language.

    What part of the island are you staying? I could give you more ideas if I knew that. For example, traffic between Lihue and Kapaa is real murder during rush hour (it is only a two lane road); that makes a difference in where you might want to go.

    Oh yeah - I highly recommend Wranglers restaurant in Waimea. They have great Teriyaki beef sandwiches!

    My wife and I always kayak up the might Zambezzi to the Fern Grotto and the waterfall.

    It may be called the Waimei river.

    I've always said if you can't take cool pictures in Hawaii, you suck.

    I'm sure you'll do great. It's paradise, on earth.

    I stayed on Poipu beach, at the Kiahuna resort, which is a condo rental place. it's actually directly adjacent to the Marriot (in fact, I even picked up the wireless signal from the marriot). Poipu beach is very nice, and is a great middle ground between the two ends of the island. Very short trip to Waimea, for instance.

    I got some good snorkeling in on Poipu beach, too.

    Good choice, that is where I like to stay. Poipu is on the dry side of the island. You will be minutes from Keoki's Paradise and Brennecke's Beach Broiler - Brennecke Beach is across the street - which is a good spot for drinks. The closest Starbuck's is at the Kukui Grove Shopping Center, about 40 minutes away (there are only two on the island).

    Places to photograph in the area: Shipwreck Beach isn't far away, there is an old volcanic crater on the back road into Koloa town situated in what used to be a pineapple/coffee plantation (not sure what it is now). Just outside Koloa town, on the road in from Lihue, there is an old cemetery, dating back to the plantation days, which is quite interesting. There is the blowhole, also not far from Poipu. Over by Waimea town, there is the "Old Russian Fort" the remains of the Russians presence in Hawaii (probably about 30 minutes drive).

    Kauai has always been my favorite island.
